Hollywood’s hottest stars in movies and music all came together last Sunday for this year’s Teen Choice Awards, hosted by singer Demi Lovato and “Glee” star Kevin Mchale. Over 134 million votes were cast for awards in the categories of movies, music, TV, fashion, sports, and other. While several awards were given out in the form of fun Teen Choice surfboards, it was evident that there was a group of five who dominated the winnings. Who were they?
# 1: The Hunger Games. This may come as no surprise but, the ever-so-popular Hunger Games film absolutely trumped every one else winning a whopping total of 8 awards. They won for choice movie: sci-fi/fantasy, choice movie actor: sci-fi/fantasy (Josh Hutcherson), choice movie actress: sci-fi/fantasy (Jennifer Lawrence), choice movie chemistry: Jennifer Lawrence and Amandla Stenberg, Choice movie liplock: Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, choice movie villain: Alexander Ludwig, choice movie scene stealer: male (Liam Hemsworth), and finally choice book - duh. Move over Twilight.
# 2: Pretty Little Liars. The hit TV show came in at a close second place with winning an overall of 5 awards for the suspense-filled drama. They won awards for choice tv show: drama, choice TV actor: drama (Ian Harding), choice tv actress: drama (Lucy Hale), choice summer tv star: female (Troian Bellisario), as well as choice TV villain (Janel Parrish).
# 3: Justin Bieber. With the whole world currently suffering from Bieber fever, the Biebs just had to be on this list. Bieber won four awards for choice male artist, choice single by a male artist for song “Boyfriend”, choice summer music star: male, and choice fashion icon: male. He even topped the night off with an amazing performance featuring Big Sean of his two singles “As Long As You Love Me” and “Boyfriend”. Check it out below!
# 4: Taylor Swift. The country crooner actually tied with Bieber for winning an overall of four awards. Ironically, she actually won many of the same awards as Bieber, but for the female category. Swift was awarded with choice female artist, choice single by a female artist for song “Eyes Open”, choice female country artist, and choice country song for “Sparks Fly”.
# 5: Twilight. While The Twilight Saga – Breaking Dawn Part 1 beat out its competition The Hunger Games at the MTV Movie Awards, it seems as if the Twilight mania has somewhat fizzled out at the TCAs. The film series was only awarded with 3 awards for choice movie:romance, choice movie actress: romance (Kristen Stewart), and choice movie scene stealer: female (Ashley Greene).
